With the first pick of the 2012 NFL Draft, the Indianapolis Colts select…

In a few short days, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell will step to the podium in Radio City Music Hall and speak those words. For a single moment, the NFL universe will hang on Goodell’s every syllable as he names the next Indianapolis franchise quarterback – Andrew Luck.

During our long path to the NFL Draft, I have attempted to show you as many different scenarios as possible. Some have been cheered, others ridiculed, while some have been outright rejected. I love hearing what you fans have to say because any time that you speak you always do so with such passion. It is passion that makes sport interesting and in this last mock draft I wish to acknowledge those who have followed my mock drafts since the beginning and thank you for taking the ride with me.

Today’s mock draft is different. No more mad predictions. No more suggesting what might happen. Here you have the 63 players I believe should be picked in the first two rounds in a world where there are no trades on draft day. With this draft, I don’t care what anyone thinks. I could care less if people disagree with me this time. While I cherish all of the opinions from you guys, this mock is about what I think should happen.

So, let’s get on with it.
